Do you want a piece of that? The opportunity is there – if you have what it takes.
Worldwide Express is a company that stands for excellence. Our success is rooted in such ideals as integrity, credibility, dedication, dependability – and opportunity. As a non-asset based transportation provider, our real asset is our people.
That’s why we provide a rigorous, nationally recognized training program that starts with basic sales and account management and continues throughout your career. And anyone you talk to at WWE will tell you the work is hard. We like to say you get three years of experience in your first year.
But anyone also will tell you we have fun along the way, and that hard work pays off fast. If you are dedicated enough, focused enough and strong enough, there is almost no ceiling on what you can accomplish.
Worldwide Express: Our Culture & Values
Our leadership team, franchise owners and sales and support teams are major influences on our corporate culture. Worldwide Express attracts people who best exemplify what we stand for, and we work hard to retain them through rapid advancement and financial incentives.
As a non-asset based transportation provider, our people are the core of our business model. Our people are our real assets, from top to bottom. That engenders a certain trust and integrity that conveys to our relationship with customers.
Trust and integrity is a key reason the customers stay with us. Small package and freight shipping are the heart of operations for the small and midsize businesses we serve. They trust us with their most important deliveries.
As cliché as it sounds, our people like coming to work. That’s important at every level of our operation. To ensure this remains the case, we nurture a culture where ideas, questions, challenges, open two-way communication and risk-taking are welcomed without fear.
By remaining true to our core values of integrity and excellence, our culture is able to constantly evolve with changing market conditions. It allows us to be well-positioned to serve our franchisees and their customers, as well as provide the continual training needed to keep everyone at the top of their game.
WWE’s ongoing education and training programs support growth and opportunity. We know that for our people to advance, they must be prepared to meet new challenges with real world experience as well as classroom knowledge. And being the best is something that everyone here takes very seriously. What does it mean to be the best? Take a look at some of WWE’s best and brightest from around the country.
If this seems like this environment would work for you, we welcome you to consider a sales career or franchise ownership with us.
Advanced Training Programs and a Legacy of Top Performing Sales Professionals
At Worldwide Express, we firmly believe that our employees are our greatest asset. Our smart, energetic, positive and well-trained sales and account management force is a primary reason for the company’s quantum rise in market share and revenue.
That’s why no WWE employee starts work before attending training courses that instill proven sales concepts and philosophies. And no manager takes over a local market before attending advanced courses that help him or her hit the ground running.
The attention we pay to preparing our employees for success is one reason Glassdoor.com ranked Worldwide Express the No. 1 destination in America for career advancement.
Our training is extensive and ongoing. It’s designed to support you at every stage of your career and give you the best chance at success as you move forward.
Here’s a summary of the different classes we offer:
Basic Sales/Account Management Training – New employees from all over the nation converge on the corporate office in Dallas for an intense course that instills WWE sales concepts and philosophies. Sales topics include a comprehensive review of products, plus lessons in prospecting, sales presentations and time management.

Level II Training – Advanced courses offer both a refresher of fundamental lessons and more advanced concepts, as well as deeper qualifying strategies that help reveal a customer’s needs. Focused time is devoted to advanced sales techniques and product knowledge for international shipping, freight shipping and technology solutions. It’s also a chance to reconnect with – and learn from – colleagues who work across the country.
Advanced Concepts in Excellence (ACE) Training – Employees selected on the basis of tenure, performance, attitude and other factors are invited to participate in ACE training, held at the corporate headquarters.

- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Worldwide Express.Interview Details
The interview process consists of an initial interview with the local manager, then a ride-along day, followed by another interview with the higher-ups.
I went in for the initial interview and right off the bat was asked to just talk about my life for 10 minutes. This position was listed as an entry-level position with no experience required, and while I did have relevant experience, I am a recent college graduate - lets be honest, there isn't that much to talk about. After I finished my life story, the interviewer proceeded by telling me about the company and the interview process. After that, the interviewer thanked me for coming in and said it was very nice to meet me without offering any sort of follow-up timeline, so I asked what the next step was. I was told to send an email with my availability for the ride-along along with a paragraph each on what Worldwide Express could do for me and what I can bring to Worldwide Express. I followed directions and sent an email that same day - only to get an email back the next morning saying never mind, they're going in a different direction!
In all, I was not asked ONE QUESTION to answer about my previous work or school experiences. Not to mention during this interview, their phone kept ringing and buzzing and he kept checking it amidst the interview. It was the most bizarre and least professional interview experience I've ever had and the email request was a complete and utter waste of my time.Interview Questions
